- WWE are taping matches for this week’s SmackDown tonight in Atlanta, Georgia due to the WrestleMania week schedule changes. Thanks to Erin Bailey for the following spoilers:
SmackDown, Airing Friday:
* Chris Jericho defeated Kofi Kingston in a solid match. Jericho countered and won with the Walls of Jericho.
* Zack Ryder pinned Drew McIntyre with Rough Ryder.
* The Big Show cut a promo saying that at Wrestlemania, he will win the Intercontinental champion and finally have his Wrestlemania moment.
* Jinder Mahal came out and began cutting a promo. DX, Shawn Michaels and HHH came out. They goofed around for a minute, then Michaels superkicked him and HHH nailed a Pedigree. Michaels took the mic and said that no matter what happens at Mania, he’s still better then HHH and ran away with HHH chasing him up the ramp. The crowd went nuts.
This apparently closes out the Smackdown taping. HUGE pop for DX! This crowd is HOT.
